The purpose of this curriculum project was to develop, revise, and field test a competency based vocational drafting program which was accomplished in four phases. An existing CBVE drafting program, developed by this author, was revised prior to the field test. New modules and audio visual presentations were developed, the program was tested in two vocational programs, and the program evaluated again after the test.

Twelve modules were revised and one new module developed. Nine new slide tape presentations were developed to supplement the modules and existing slide tapes.

The program was tested at the Russellville Vocational School, Russellville, Kentucky, and the Allen County Scottsville Vocational School, Scottsville, Kentucky. Involved was a total of 45 students. The students were high school juniors and seniors in their first year of drafting.

The field test was conducted during the 1980-81 school year. An evaluation instrument was used to assess the student reactions to the CBVE program. Ninety five percent of the students rated the program as superior to other lecture based programs they had experienced. Ninety eight percent of the students rated the slide tape presentations as excellent or good.
